Aquilegia Seedpods

Today’s flower is not so much a flower as it is a seedpod grouping from the Aquilegia or Columbine flower. I love these flowers, but there were none left when I began this project and this seed pod appealed to me with its colour and textures. And don’t worry. I won’t deprive you of a flower after all….

Because everyone wants a flower too, here are the flowers for you today. They are from the nightshade plant, and were hiding in the blackberries I was picking a couple of weeks ago. Deadly nightshade they may be, but the flowers are lovely and unusual, almost like little jester hats and they deserve a place in my flower a day postings. Wishing everyone a good week ahead.

  1. Good pairing, Ellie – the flower that was and the flower that still is. The past, the seedpods, representing symbolically the future of the other, the delicate deadly nightshade. I think there’s a poem in there somewhere.

  2. I love both photos, and I agree so much with you about the special texture of the seedpods, it’s really appealing.
    And I’m happy you have so much blue/purple flowers in your garden and around your house, I love this colour!!

    1. I’m so glad you like them, Banafshe.The seedpods one was one of the photos that I have liked the most but wasn’t sure of the appeal to those wanting to see only flowers. And the colour of those hidden flowers does come as such a lovely surprise when you are picking blackberries for the winter. You are right. We do have lots of those colours around.

      1. It’s true that we always wait to see your flower photos, but I’m sure everybody is agree with me when I say the other ones are just as perfect and interesting as your flower collection.
        (I’m glad we can give a heart here too!! =) )

  3. I knew this flower for its medical virtues and have had it in homeopathy! I did not have any idea how it could look! It is beautiful!
